Marvel previews: UNCANNY X-MEN #495, THE TWELVE #2 (of 12).
The Uncanny X-Men Are No More!
In the wake of Messiah CompleX's jaw-dropping conclusion, the X-Men are no more-but where do Xavier's former students go from here? In Uncanny X-Men #495, from Eisner-winning author Ed Brubaker and rising star artist Michael Choi, the surviving mutants must reassess Xavier's dreams and decide if peaceful coexistence is still an option. An X-Men: Divided We Stand tie-in, this issue sets the stage for mutantkind's future and while former allies are mourned, is the world truly safer? Meanwhile, Iron Man confronts Cyclops with a plan for ensuring the safety of all mutants-but will he agree?
Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Uncanny X-Men #495 and all X-Men: Divided We Stand tie-ins, as all X-titles continue to sell out at Diamond and buzz keeps growing around this bold new direction for the X-Men! The only thing that's certain for Cyclops and his allies is that a world without X-Men will be unlike anything you've seen before-and it all begins in Uncanny X-Men #495!

Freshly Defrosted, The Twelve's Journey Continues
After being frozen for decades by the Nazis, the heroic Mystery Men of the World War II era are back in action! Acclaimed writer J. Michael Straczynski and artist Chris Weston, bring this team back in The Twelve #2 (of 12) with a fantastic cover by superstar Kaare Andrews. With Captain Wonder at the helm, the team is faced with living in a world where everyone they knew and loved are no longer around, as they wake up to a new world! After surrendering their secret identities and registering with the Initiative, the American government tries to ease these heroes back into a world where the definition of heroism may have changed.
Kevin Powers, of ComicsBulletin.com, says, "The Twelve is most certainly J. Michael Straczynski at his finest. It's sophisticated yet fun, sad yet extraordinary, mysterious and brilliant and has the potential to sail out of the park."
Their secret identities exposed, the Twelve must adapt to a more dangerous world-one in which some of them do not have super powers! Will these heroes be accepted in the post-Civil War world? Are their days as heroes numbered? These questions and more are answered in The Twelve #2 (of 12)!
